Batman & Harley Quinn Review: 3 Ups & 8 Downs

7. The Animation Is Extremely Cheap-Looking

Batman And Harley Quinn Nightwing
Warner Bros.

Overly low-budget animation is a common complaint about Warner Bros' animated movies, and sadly this is one of the more unfortunate and blatant cases to date.

The film has clearly been churned out at a small cost for a quick buck, so the animation has a stilted look to it, with a low frame-rate, generally uninspired shot selections and only the most necessary character movements.

There are very few moments where this film actually looks good visually, instead touting a generic, forgettable aesthetic that's got nothing on the better Batman animations.

There are talented, unemployed artists everywhere who will no doubt be infuriated that something so rough actually got a licensed release.


Stay at home dad who spends as much time teaching his kids the merits of Martin Scorsese as possible (against the missus' wishes). General video game, TV and film nut. Occasional sports fan. Full time loon.
